Paper Falls
I have been making this recent group of large  21” X 72” ink drawings, since the spring of 2012. Using a flat watercolor brush and indigo ink, I make simple rectangular monochromatic marks of different hues on long vertical paper. I place these marks next to each other to form large organic abstract patterns that reference on the micro level, pixels or cellular structures and on the macro level, aerial maps of urban land plots. My paintings bring to mind many kinds of movement as well: water flowing, the lapping of waves, the tumbling of a waterfall, or the slow movement of growth of structures or even cities.
 I live and work on the Lower East Side of New York where I tend a community garden and muse on growth and form and these musings often find their way into my studio.
